INFORMATION
The movement restriction listed on the hero ally cards Leaflock and Skinbark include a region named “Redhorn Gap.” There is no region card named "Redhorn Gap." There is, however, a region card titled “Redhorn Gate.” The ally Treebeard who also was given the same movement restriction, was later issued an erratum: Replace “Redhorn Gap” with “Redhorn Gate.” Leaflock and Skinbark were apparently overlooked when this erratum was issued.

BALLOT ITEM # 1:
Are you in favor of issuing the following errata?

LEAFLOCK
Change This:
Unique. Playable at Wellinghall. Tap to cancel the effects of one hazard that targets his company. May not be attacked by automatic‐attacks or hazards keyed to his site. Discard Leaflock if his company moves to a site that is not in: Fangorn, Rohan, Gap of Isen, Wold and Foothills, Enedhwaith, Old Pûkel‐land, Brown Lands, Anduin Vales, or Redhorn Gap.
To This:
Unique. Playable at Wellinghall. Tap to cancel the effects of one hazard that targets his company. May not be attacked by automatic‐attacks or hazards keyed to his site. Discard Leaflock if his company moves to a site that is not in: Fangorn, Rohan, Gap of Isen, Wold and Foothills, Enedhwaith, Old Pûkel‐land, Brown Lands, Anduin Vales, or Redhorn Gate.
(changes in bold for clarity)

SKINBARK
Change This:
Unique. Playable at Wellinghall. May not be attacked by automatic‐attacks or hazards keyed to his site. Discard Skinbark if his company moves to a site that is not in: Fangorn, Rohan, Gap of Isen, Wold and Foothills, Anduin Vales, or Redhorn Gap.

(changes in bold for clarity)


CONSEQUENCES OF YOUR VOTE:
If you vote YES, then Leaflock and Skinbark will be allowed to move within the Redhorn Gate region without being discarded.

If you vote NO, then Leaflock and Skinbark will remain unchanged. It will be up to each playgroup and tournament judge to decide whether or not these allies are permitted to move in the Redhorn Gate region without being discarded.

ADDITIONAL COMMENTS:
Most players currently ignore the "Redhorn Gap" typo and play as if it says "Redhorn Gate." This is without doubt what ICE intended.

REFERENCE TOPICS:
None

This was covered back in 1996 and it's also in the CRF under Treebeard. Low hand but worthless fruit.

I would advise shaving your opponent's foot first. Yes, it is supposed
to be Redhorn Gate. It will be in the next FAQ.
